Continuous Street Hockey Game Record Attempt
UPDATE: After several injuries and 50 grueling hours of street hockey it was decided in the interest of safety to end the attempt at a world's record. Organizers promise to return next year in another bid to set the record.
Two teams will attempt to set a world record for the longest continuous street hockey game by keeping the game going for 105 hours and 17 minutes to establish a new Guiness World Record.
The game began at 3:00 am Friday and must continue until Tuesday July 3 at 5:17 pm to be successful in setting the new record. The game is ongoing at the lacrosse box beside the Nanaimo Curling Club on Wall Street.
The game is a fundraiser which will benefit the Big Brothers Big sisters of Central Vancouver Island, Naniamo Ball Hockey League and the Crimson Coast Dance Society.
You can stop by and offer your moral support and any donation you wish to make to the cause will be greatly appreciated.
The two teams involved are sponsored by University Mall and CUPE local 8.
